Hello Frederique,

 You have to track the errata branch of 4.7. That would be RELENG_4_7.
Get the sources (i suppose they are on cvs) using csup(1) and rebuild
and you should get to p28.

 I don't know for sure if the sources for that specific errata branch are
still there.
Maybe others can shed some lights on this.

Here you can find the errata 4.7-RELEASE errata:

a great day,
